Top 6 tools for Windows

This application package includes programs that help you clean up your computer, convert video recordings and provide remote assistance to others. It is worth using them.

An alternative to Windows window manager

Here you will find such programs as “Total Commander” and “Open-Shell”. The first one is a real classic, which is constantly being developed – it is a brilliant alternative to the simple “Explorer built into Windows”. Thanks to the view of two windows and the support of advanced keyboard shortcuts, many file operations can be performed much faster. “Open-Shell” is a great addition for people who want to use Windows 10 from the classic “Start Menu” view, which is more friendly, because it is known from older versions of the system.

Total Commander – file manager with a huge number of options

The latest edition of the best file manager, a program that makes it easy to manage a large number of files and folders on your hard drive and other media. TC is great for copying, moving, searching and deleting files. It has a lot of configuration options, several view modes, support for plugins, and also offers FTP client functions. Worth noting is also the function of saving in the form of a log of all performed operations on files. In relation to older versions from a few years ago, much more modern icons have been introduced that are much more eye-catching.
